What happened to your CD player that makes you believe that it is destroyed from a bad speaker? What have you tried so far to find the error? I think I would check the wiring harness first. If you give us more of a description of what is going on with your CD player and speakers, we could try to assist you further.


There is a certain sound in the speakers when it is a short circuit. I have tried a lot of things, but it was when i tried to connect an Amplifier to the back speakers i really knew. As you know you got to have separate cables from the Amplifier to the speakers. When i started the system the Amplifier instantly switched to " safe mode". ( sorry for my bad spelling/grammar, hope you understand what i mean )


Have you checked you original wiring harness , just to make sure there is no short circuit in the wiring? I would use a separate speaker to make sure that everything else is working okay. Temporarily replace one rear speaker and see what it does.

The package tray needs to come out in order to replace the speaker covers or speakers.

1. Remove the 3 bolts attaching the deck to the frame

2. Remove the side panels that hold down the deck so you really have to take these off. They should just snap off.

3. Remove the high mounted stop light.

4. Either remove the back seats or try to fold the back seats down and see if that gives you enough room.

5. To remove the deck you first need to go in through your trunk and you'll see 4 white clips. Push these up with some pliers, then from the inside just tug it away. Be careful shimmying the tray out, since you do not want to break it.

6. Remove old speakers. They should be held down by 3 screws.
